EA's Open World Star Wars Game Cancelled?

Kotaku reports a rumor that Electronic Arts has canceled their open-world Star Wars game. This is unconfirmed, but they attribute the news to "three people familiar with goings-on at the company." This is the action/adventure that was in development at EA Vancouver from the ashes of a more linear Star Wars game that was in development at Visceral Games until EA closed the studio in 2017. They say this is now likewise cancelled, though EA did not immediately respond to a request for comment. They also note that it is not clear what EA Vancouver's next new game will be, but they say they've heard it might be "a different Star Wars project."

AAA-gaming is dead. The only ones left will be the twelveyear olds stealing mommys credidcard to buy their lootboxes.

Interesting I play AAA Games and I'm not using credit cards and lootboxes, must be different options out there.

Open World Star Wars am I supposed to have feelings for something I never knew?

SWBF2 might be the last AAA SW game, and the last AAA EA game to not have any real monitization, and not much continuing content, but what's there is good.

that just leaves the star wars game in development by respawn entertainment now to break the drought of mediocre star wars games nearly 15 years running.

utterly believable, the dragon age: inquisition sequel was cancelled and 1-2 years of pre-production was thrown in the garbage (this being the reason dragon age boss mike laidlaw quit bioware) because it didn't jibe with the new "live services" model; it's reportedly only in the works again because it was reworked for "long-term monetization".

Fxxk this company. I am glad EA don't sell their game in Steam anymore. I don't even have the need to install Origin.

2 for 2 proved EA is suck with their exclusive license. The first one was Porsche. For the past decade, Porsche - one of the brand with rich motorsport history) had been missed on many great driving titles. (This is the reason why previous Playstation GT use Ruf)

And now Star Wars - one of the IP with so many stories are now exclusive to a fxxking game dev like to develop game with story telling mechanics.

Only fxxking dumb companies will give exclusive right to EA.

What a great choice Disney made when they gave Star Wars exclusively to EA blinded by dollar bills in their eyes.  
They're waiting for you, Gabe, in the test chamber!

Even though we know little more about this game I can't wait to hear about how it was going to be the greatest SW game ever since 1313.
